Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish

1 Corinthians 1:20
for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all
the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with
his own blood. 29 I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30
and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.
31 Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with
tears. 32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give
you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 1 Corinthians 1:20 for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. 29 I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. 31 Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears. 32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:27-32
